The 2008 Hip Hop for President Tour

This tour brings forth the voices that mainstream media and established leadership do not want you to hear. How does Hip Hop expand the body politic, to include the issues that are most affecting our collective communities?

How can we (the hip hop community) avoid the trappings of "Vote or Die"? How do we hold elected leadership accountable to the people, and how do we unite African-American, Latino, Asian and Native youth?
